Could someone please tell Cardiff City that letting the opposition go 2-0 up inside 8 minutes is NOT how to begin a game!?

I'm so glad we won that game - David James did a damn good job trying to prevent us winning, fair play to him. Could definitely see why Bristol are propping up the table though - utterly toothless in attack, though they did look strong on set-pieces. I think that was more due to us being shit at defending though!
'ang about weren't City your pick for promotion this year
Well, dark horses. At the time, they had James and Coppell. It wasn't so fantastical! Plus we got odds on them going at 20-1 and was worth a punt. For someone else obviously I don't do betting with predictions like that one!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Sir Alex confirms Rooney wants to leave infact according to Sir Alex...Rooney wanted to leave before the season began WTF WTF I mean seriously. This stinks of his agent turning his head to bigger £££ contracts, how much fucking money does he want. If Wayne leaves United, his career at the levels hes enjoyed is finished IMO.

I want Capello to come out and Say Rooney is being frozen out of the ENG team till he sorts out is head, we can build a team without him. Everytime ENG gets a special player it gets ruined...

Gazza - Self inflicted career suicide.

Owen/Shearer - Injuries blighted substantial portions of their career

Rooney - Doing a Gazza

Fuck him. Greed, pure and simple. Take the money asap, he's not the player he was anyway.

Back in real football land, Cardiff cut QPR's dominance to two points, Derby get a fantastic away win at Doncaster and Forest rub salt in Boro's wounds. A good night.

Tottenham is getting a pretty severe beating by Inter right now. What's the highest an English club has ever lost in the European Cup?

Hehe, yeah, my earlier comment would look even more stupid if they had made just another one (or Inter scored one less before halftime), eh?

Yeah, one less Inter goal and a creditable draw. As it stands, they lost because William Gallas is fcuking sh1te!

Still, a bit of a concern for Inter though, Gareth Bale nearly beat them on his own.....

Yup a very good night for all three teams; I still can't believe we're 7th! Will it last, who can say but its nice to be on a run of good form for a change.

As for Rooney, gotta love the damage limitation of making it all about the Glazers, clearly his head has been turned somewhere down the line and whatever the reason, he's gone about it in a cack handed way. Have to say though, Ferguson's knack for getting rid of players at just the right time may have deserted him this time; Fergie of old would have likely sold Rooney before the WC!

But lets not be too hard on the lad, prostitutes don't pay for themselves you know...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I don't see what the big deal is with Rooney to be honest. Where is it written that once you sign with United you can never go anywhere else? Footballers transfer all the time, but apparently United think they are "special". Once his contract is up he can go wherever the fuck he pleases. Wake up, you only even got Rooney because you were the richest at the time and now others have more money; English football is shifting.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think its the timing of it, and the cack handed way it's been done that utd fans are annoyed at. Of course players move on; take Ronaldo etc, but Utd's best player has effectively ruled himself out of the next 2 months until the window opens, seriously can anyone see Rooney playing again before he's sold?

Want to leave your club and move on, fine, but spitting your dummy out when you can't even be sold for months smacks of unprofessionalism...then again this is Wayne Rooney who hasn't exactly covered himself in glory in the last six months. Slagging off England fans, betraying his wife, dissing his team mates...

Ronaldo may be a bit of a dick at times, but compared to Roo he's a model pro.

And you're right, English football is shifting, unfortunately its shifting in the wrong direction. Rather than becoming less about money it's becoming more about it, and the players are changing, which in one way is good, the dominance of Utd and co the last 20 years hasn't always made for the most exciting of seasons, but in ten years maybe we'll be talking about the rise of Billionaire owned Bolton Wanderers winning the Champions League and Man City narrowly avoiding administration

But only because of the insane fan reaction. There's still plenty of time to be angry if he does end up going to City, why the hell harass him now, how stupid is that?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Yes but he's also had a pop at his team mates as well for being not good enough which to some extent might preclude him playing again (although not neccesarily)

The demo outside his house is a trifle daft to say the least, I really hope he isn't stupid enough to move to Man City but I guess money talks.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Yeah, I agree, signing for Manchester City would be a slap in the face of the United fans. But in regards to the teammates I'd say "suck it up and do your fucking job"; I can't decide for myself who I'm working with either and I don't get paid even 1/10 of the poorest of them. Also I'm pretty sure Ferguson would have no problem quenching any opposition from the players if he decided to let Rooney continue to play.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Rooney has just signed a new year deal at United. Must have succumbed to his money demands.

Whatever - that's one hell of a big buy-out clause now. They can still sell him for big money!

Gareth Bale by the way - love the boy.
